With his years of experience, Pranab Mukherjee will be "one of the wisest presidents", Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit said on Sunday.

"I think he will be a wise president, not being a political president or an administrative president… Because he has so many years of experience in both governance and working in the party, so, I think he will be one of the wisest presidents we have had," Dikshit told a TV channel in New Delhi.

Dikshit said she found it amazing that some parties in the opposition ranks supported Mukherjee.

"Even the NDA broke up and wanted to vote for the president to be Pranab Mukherjee," she said, adding that Mukherjee and his rival PA Sangma "were poles apart fairly".
